Through the Windshield

At Gemini Circle this afternoon. I took the picture - with my cell phone - because I admired the peacock painted on the back of the truck, and saw for the umpteenth time the contrasts of the world -- me in my car with the windows closed and the air-conditioner on, listening to a Brahms clarinet sonata on the CD player; and the man in front of me, sitting on sacks of goods. And the enormous hoardings, messages in the sky, advertising products he can never buy, and so on and so on.
